Cape Meares Lighthouse

From Pacific City, we took a short drive back north, sans trailers, to visit one of nine lighthouses along this stretch of the coast.

This particular lighthouse is only one of two that is 8-sided.  The glass is alternately clear and red, and makes one full revolution every four minutes.  So the light will flash alternately red and white every thirty seconds – a sure sign that this is, in fact, Cape Meares.

On our way back to the camp-site, we stopped to look at Sand Lake.  We imagined a lake with a sandy bottom – this is what we found:

It’s an Off-Road Vehicle recreation area – just perfect for those dune buggies.  There was no indication if this had ever been a real lake.  The sand was incredibly fine, almost like talcum powder – I wanted to take some home with me.

Our trip is winding down – only a couple more days, and we’ll be headed homeward.  In the meantime, still more historical town-sites, sand-dunes, and sea-lion caves to visit.
